Suffolk school districts must hand over financial documents

The Suffolk County District Attorneys Office has ordered the 70 school districts in the county to hand over all financial documents from the last four years.

The investigation is sparked by recent spending scandals in the Three Village District and at William Floyd. Area superintendents, who met at Dowling College for their quarterly meeting, had mixed reactions to the subpoenas. Some felt the audits would strengthen the districts, while others feared they would prove to be too time consuming.

School districts will be required to turn over the documents by November 29.
